On the heels of rising martial arts phenomenon Sarah Chang joining the cast of the Scott Adkins led sequel Accident Man 2, we have another exciting addition for you as martial arts dynamo and former Jackie Chan stunt team member Andy Long Nguyen has officially been added per the site Martial Arts Action Cinema.
The former member of Chan’s prestigious stunt team is best known for films like Luc Van Tien: Kung Fu Warrior, and Armor of God 3: Chinese Zodiac. Check him out in full throttle action below and get a sneak peek of what to expect from the talented fighter.
Nguyen joins Chang in the anticipated sequel that will be helmed by the directing team of George and Harry Kirby. The two have cut their teeth in the industry and has managed to put out numerous projects via their K&K productions banner. George even brings a high level of stunt knowledge to the picture having done work on various MCU projects like Marvel’s Doctor Strange along with Sony’s recent hit Venom: Let There Be Carnage. He also worked on the action-thriller American Assassin which also featured Adkins.
Nguyen definitely has the skill set and looks for the movie although just like Chang, his role is under lock and key at the moment. Nguyen is no stranger with Adkins as the two previously tussled in one of the best fight sequences from Boyka: Undisputed and he also served as the action director on Adkins’ Max Cloud. Chances are, Adkins and Nguyen will get a Boyka rematch.
Adkins recently shedded some light on the project through an Instagram post where he gave fans a brief synopsis for the follow up.
Jesse V. Johnson helmed the first film which is based on the character Mike Fallon, AKA Accident Man, which was created by Pat Mills in 1991 in the underground UK comic Toxic! Adkins’ longtime collaborator Stu Small returns to pen the sequel. The popular character got his nickname due to the fact that he was an assassin who made his hits look like accidents.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come from Accident Man 2 as production is underway!
